In keeping with the Halloween season and the body/health posts of recent here on Web 2.0 for ESL, the link below is to a nice little video about “Dem Bones,” which identifies and explains the purposes of the bones and joints. The English will be somewhat difficult for beginning ESL students, but see what “body” vocabulary the students do recognize. You can then sing or play the song and have the students point to the bones. Later, they can sing along with you while pointing to the appropriate bones. Enjoy, and happy Halloween!

Aches and Pains, another Nearpod presentation with audio and interactive activities, is to help your beginning-level ESL students learn to say what hurts. It requires minimal computer experience and will give the students practice using a computer mouse, mouse pad, or tablet/iPad. I suggest that this lesson be presented by the teacher first to demonstrate how to advance the slides, use the audio, and complete the interactive activities, and then assigned to the students to use either individually or in pairs as a study tool.
For additional practice for your students on describing how they feel and responding to others’ feelings, take a look at these online resources: ESL Health Unit, Aches and Pains, Injuries/Parts of the Body, Expressing Pain, Showing Sympathy/Injuries.
Many thanks to the producer of the Body-Parts presentation.
